What about summer shipping?

Neem salve for dogs

Our delicate natural products packaged in lip balm tubes, glass jars and metal tins are sensitive to temperature changes. Our coconut oil based deodorant liquifies if left in direct sun and often during transit (coconut oil liquifies around 76 degrees).

During hot weather, our products often soften or even melt in transit as they sit in warm mail trucks, mailboxes or on your front porch.


What to do about melting?

If your shipment arrives on a sunny hot day it is best to refrigerate it before opening anything in a glass jar or tin .  If you open items immediately, especially the deodorant in jars and the salve in tins, if melting has occurred, the product will spill out and make a mess!

We want to stress that the quality and healing properties of these products are not affected by melting.

Deodorants:  BEFORE opening the jar, pop it in the refrigerator or freezer for 10 - 15 minutes. As it begins to stiffen up, give it a good stir so that the product is well mixed (we do not use emulsifiers in the deodorant) and place it back in the refrigerator or freezer for another 10-15 minutes.

Deodorant sampler...when you just can't choose.

We have been making quality soaps since 2001. You will feel and see the difference! Although our soaps may sweat in humid weather, they will NOT melt.
